Week of September 29 - October 3

Hello ACS Families,
Sorry I am getting this bulletin out so late, this weekend was a busy one, the varsity soccer and volleyball teams went to Columbia to participate in a tournament on Friday and Saturday.  Both teams did not do as well as they would have liked but that is the nature of sports.  We also learned that unexpected things can occur while playing sports.  Unfortunately during our last soccer game a very dramatic collision occurred between one of our players and one of the other team members.  Our player came away uninjured but the opposing player suffered a serious broken leg mere inches above his ankle.  It was a heart-wrenching moment as the opponent went down in agony and had to be carried off the field by his teammates.  One awe inspiring moment was as the players carried him off the field they were praying fervently out loud for him.  Our own Applewood warriors stopped all and gathered together to pray and look on as the tragedy unfolded.  Luckily Dr Allcorn was on hand to aid and comfort the team member until the ambulance arrived.  Though the boys played with all their might, they ended up losing the match.   The injured players name is Robert and he is a senior for those who would like to pray for him.  Also please keep our own players in constant prayer as they travel and participate during the sports season.

Mrs. Young


Thanks to Mr. Nichols for coming and demonstrating the art of blacksmithing to our students.  Mr. Nichols will be at Bothwell Lodge on Oct. 4th for those of you who would like to see him there.

Tomorrow (Monday) is the last day for ACS t-shirt orders.  Please turn in your order with payment to the office.

Christian College Fair for students grades 9 – 12.  A permission slip was emailed to each student’s home computer.  Please bring in the slip signed with $8.00 for gas and money for dinner.  We will be leaving directly after school.  We will stop to eat dinner before the fair.  We will be back to the ACS parking lot by 10:00 pm. 

Mid term cut off is this Wednesday.  Teachers will have time on Monday morning to record their students’ grades.  Mid term reports will go home with students on Monday.

Next teacher meeting Monday Oct. 6.

Homework Survey.  Now that everyone has settled into a routine the academic committee would like to take a homework survey.  We will be sending home a sheet with each student tomorrow and would like parents to time how long it takes for each student to do each of their subjects both Tuesday and Thursday.  Be sure to include any work done during school (between classes or after school) or study hall.  This is to help teachers get an idea how long it is taking the students in their classes to do their homework.  Thank you for your assistance!

We are way overdue for a Spirit Day!  Let's show our spirit for our school and our sports teams by wearing red, white, and black this Friday!

The volleyball shirts will be ready just in time for spirit day!  Volleyball team players meet Becca Wednesday after school in the ROC to get your shirt.  If you haven't turned in your money by then please bring it with you. 

Oct. 31 is still a NO SCHOOL day.  Since Oct. 29 is the last day of the quarter, we are making Oct. 31 a teacher work day so that teachers can work on their grades at home.  Students will have work on Thursday but not Friday.

Parent Teacher conferences have been moved to Nov. 10!

                   Box Tops for Education
